I Do ~The Cutting Cafe~


I Do

Ok so Valentines Day is around the corner right, yep, and that sweet little holiday is super easy with all the files offered at The Cutting Cafe. You can find lots and lots of ideas here. I decided after seeing some of Regina's files to make something for a surprise wedding album (hence the warning to my husband but really, if he's going to be snoopy then he'll just ruin it for himself in the end.) 

The Cafe file used are these awesome Heart Pockets. Sweet ideas as well for these but my idea was to add this to a layout. 

Using a photo editing software I added the sentiment from another file (and after the last 20 something minutes trying to figure out where that came from, I gave up, argh!) I cut with a small Xacto knife the heart and then embossed acetate and added that inside the envelope. The plan is to put mine and my husband's vow's in that pocket.

This beautiful I Do is a cut from Sweethearts. I stamped a flourish stamp and then heat embossed with a silver powder. 

And the same technique to this ring cut (same cart) and then added Stickles for the diamond.

And lastly, a lil' close up of the Newlyweds! And a bit of fun facts...I was already married! About 6 months before our wedding we went to Las Vegas and got married at The Little White Wedding Chapel. So I had a crazy run-away wedding and then something still traditional! =)

Thanks for visiting and hopefully see you guys soon! ~Leah

So Gorgeous Leah! Your Husband is going to Love it! I had to giggle about running away to get married and then having a traditional wedding later. I did that the first time in Vegas too at the Little Chapel of the West (but then got divorced, long story there, lol) Then got married the second time in Vegas again at the Marriage Commissioner, and still married this time, lol! Hope we get to see more of the pics as you go!

I just love this Leah! I am making a scrapbook for my son and future daughter in law and this is such a great page. When you referred to Sweethearts, is that a cut file from Cutting Cafe? I just love the ring, hope it is something from CCafe too. Cathy Weber CWeber2002@aol.com
